(Part IV and V). This excellent film ends with the retreating of the enemy still further, with much battle coverage. More dog fights are seen, and more heay artillery. What's interesting is that along with the Allied victories, the film never shies away with the observation that with victory, it sometimes comes with a price. Scenes of death on the warfield are shown throughout Parts 2-5, but none to gruesome (thank goodness!) Also throughout the films is the emergence of pets of soldiers in the warfield, A practice of which I'm not sure if they're continuing. In part IV, a tiger is even shown, tied up and is described as a 'mascot' for the men. Uh huh. Part IV also shows the non-war lighter side, as productions are shown with some very convincing drag done by the soldiers, gambling and ither horseplay.

All in all, these series of films are crucial of observation of the history of war, and presents a well balanced overview of the first big war, World War I.
